A Quote by James Kavanaugh on dreams, laughter, and laziness

I was born to catch dragons in their dens And pick flowers To tell tales and laugh away the morning To drift and dream like a lazy stream And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

A Quote by Henri Perrin on christ, christianity, cities, day, good, honesty, justice, kindness, laws, laziness, love, men, understanding, and words

A great many of those about me would be imprisoned under any law; in France, as here, they would be regular jailbirds. But I loved them better and better - and still I knew how little was my love for them compared to Christ's. It is easy enough f or a man to be honest and a "Good Christian" and keeper of "the moral law", when he has his own little room, his purse well filled - when he is well shod and well fed. It is far less easy for a man who has to live from day to day, roaming from city to c city, from factory to factory. It is far less easy for someone just out of jail, with nothing to wear but old down-at-the-heels shoes and a shirt in rags. All of a sudden, I understood our Lord's words: "I was in prison . . . and you visited me not." All these men, lazy, outside the law, starving: these failures of all kinds - they were dear to Christ - they were Christ, waiting in prison for someone to lean over Him - and if we were true Christians, we would do them every kindness.

A Quote by Harry S. Truman on laziness, leadership, people, and persuasion

My definition of a leader . . . is a man who can persuade people to do what they don't want to do, or do what they're too lazy to do, and like it.

Harry Truman (1884 - 1972)

A Quote by George Macdonald on christ, church, day, foolishness, giving, god, heresy, laziness, learning, men, mind, sons, spirit, teachers, present, and world

There is more hid in Christ than we shall ever learn, here or there either; but they that begin first to inquire will soonest be gladdened with revelation; and with them He will be best pleased, for the slowness of His disciples troubled Him of old. To say that we must wait for the other world, to know the mind of Him who came t o this world to give Himself to us, seems to me the foolishness of a worldly and lazy spirit. The Son of God is the teacher of men, giving to them of His Spirit - that Spirit which manifests the deep things of God, being to a man the mind of Christ. The great heresy of the Church of the present day is unbelief in this Spirit.

George Macdonald (1824 - 1905)

A Quote by Francis Harry Compton Crick on experience, intuition, laziness, and reading

In my experience most mathematicians are intellectually lazy and especially dislike reading experimental papers. He (René Thom) seemed to have very strong biological intuitions but unfortunately of negative sign.

A Quote by Fernand Méry on cats, dreams, justice, laziness, and power

Are cats lazy? Well, more power to them if they are. Which one of us has not entertained the dream of doing just as he likes, when and how he likes, and as much as he likes?
